Metallica has pulled into Vancouver this week to play two shows on Friday (August 24th) and Saturday (August 25th), both of which are being filmed for the band's upcoming 3D feature film. But now the group has added a third gig on Monday (August 27th) in order to do some additional shooting for the movie, and according to a post at Metallica's official website, tickets for that show will cost just five dollars.
The post read in part, "We will be running though the full live show one last time at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, but unlike the Friday and Saturday shows, there will be lots of breaks in it to allow for cameras and lights to be repositioned as the director sees fit. Since it is way more fun for us to have YOU there, tickets will be available for just $5 (no extra fees or service charges!) and all the proceeds will benefit the Greater Vancouver Food Bank."
Tickets will be available in a special Ticketmaster pre-sale on Friday at 9:00 a.m. PT, with a password available at Metallica's website.
Fan club members had their own pre-sale, while general public ticket sales start on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. There are no floor tickets due to amount of gear being used for filming, and there is a four-ticket-per-person limit.
The band has also filmed shows in Mexico City and Edmonton for the movie, performing on a massive, 150-long stage that incorporates elements from past Metallica live productions.
The movie, which is said to be a combination of concert film and narrative storyline, is being directed by Nimrod Antal, who helmed the movies Vacancy and Predators. It is due for release in summer 2013.
